comment Distribute terrabyte files to the public from web server
Torrents are a great idea and they're meant for similar circumstances, but the problem is that they generally require multiple users to be downloading the torrented files at the same time. MarkJ's description mentions that only a few people will be downloading the files. On the other hand, one possible consideration is Amazon's S3. carltonbale.com/… contains a good description of how to use the feature. Beware, however, of the GB-month storage cost.

comment Switches with 802.1x “supplicant timeout” feature?
Chris: if I recall correctly, the EAP traffic is L2 and only between the supplicant and the switch; the switch proxies the authentication to the RADIUS server (in Cisco's case, the ACS). The supplicant never sees the details of the VLAN assignment because it's on an access port and doesn't attempt to acquire an address via DHCP until the authentication process is over. So the traffic's not really forwarded from the port to the rest of the VLAN. When a non-supplicant is connected, it sends only data (non-802.1x) traffic so it talks only to the guest VLAN.

comment Switches with 802.1x “supplicant timeout” feature?
Heh, I haven't really worked with switches from other vendors, Antoine. Chris, the port is up and connected to the guest VLAN when there is no supplicant; only in the case that there is a supplicant does the port change VLANs. When the port detects media disconnection, the switch puts it back into the guest VLAN.
